    did the car not start again at all?
    sounds like the computer/ ABS sensor might have an issue.

You deftly have a electrical problem must likely is at the fuse relay box Check all wires going to the fuse/relay boxes look for lose burned or cut wires and check all fuses specially the big ones if you have a burn fuse check the corresponding wires of that fuse because you may have a short cut some where if you cant find then I recommend getting a repair manual from your local auto part store or go to www.alldatadiy.com

My inside dashboard lights and back break light suddenly stopped working so cant drive it at night. Its a 99 honda prelude. I've tried changing the light bulbs and the fuse but still not working.


If the dash lights are on the same circuit as the park lights. Chances are if no dash lights... no park lights. Unless the dash light dimmer switch is on the low position. Check park light fuse. If no brake lights... which are on a different circuit and you are sure the bulbs are ok check brake light fuse. If fuse ok, unplug brake light switch at brake pedal and cross the terminals with a jumper. If brake lights work, the brake switch is faulty. If still no brake light operation suspect a wiring issue

The battery/ brake light was caused by the alternator. so make sure the battery is good and good connections. turn the headlights on and be sure they are bright.

2002 VW Jetta died while driving it.


Either you threw a belt or the alternator went bad. Your symptoms sound like alternator...you were running on the battery till you ran out of power.

99 hyundai accent starts sometimes. not battery


ok when the check engine light comes on that usually indicates a engine malfunction...what you can do is go to your local autozone and they can do an OBDII test for free..my bet says it is the cam or crank sensor.. DO NOT SHUT THE CAR OFF AT AUTOZONE..LOL
